Fay Rains on my Parade... Literally

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! I'm on my way to my goal of $4500! To check the progress, visit my fundraising page.

In other news, Hurricane Fay is really putting a cramp in my "pre-training with the team" training schedule! Doesn't Fay know that I've never run before and I need the extra time to not look like an out of shape secretary on my first day?? (That title soon to be upgraded to out of shape communications specialist, sounds much better right?) I just can't bear the thought of running three miles on a treadmill. If I run outside, I have to get back home so I have no choice... my thoughts when running on the treadmill sound something like this "Hmm... one mile? That's good enough... I wonder what smoothie is on special today." Needless to say, it's a little less than productive!

Additional thanks goes to those of you who told me they actually read this... it's nice to know I'm not just talking to myself!

Hey hun! I've honestly never commented on a blog before, but i wanted to wish you the best of luck in runnig your 13 miles - I've ran 9 miles once and my body ached for 24 hours like I was 90 years old so my advice is to definitely use your training schedule to build up your stamina. I think its great that you are doing this and you will have an amazing feeling of accomplishment once you complete it! I agree running on a treadmil is no where near as fun as running outside. I will continue reading your blog to keep up with your progress. You know I love you and your sister to death! I know you'll do great! Love, Dara
